    Dreamfall Chapters production to be funded by Kickstarter

    [​IMG] (14 minutes ago)

    [​IMG]Dreamfall Chapters is the long-awaited return of a classic adventure game series, so you've probably already guessed that it'll be funded by Kickstarter.

    "We will be doing a Kickstarter," creator Ragnar Tørnquist told Rock, Paper, Shotgun. "Not right now, but we will be doing it in the near future, simply because although we received a grant from the Norwegian Film Institute, which was announced today, that is only for the preproduction phase. That allows us to get started on a prototype but in order to fully develop Dreamfall Chapters we're going to need more money and we will be going to Kickstarter."

    The new studio working on Dreamfall Chapters, Red Thread Games, will be "completely independent of Funcom," Tørnquist said, though Tørnquist will continue to work as creative director on The Secret World for Funcom, and the two companies will share revenue from Dreamfall.

    I've only played the sequel, but I loved it. I really need to get around to the first one.

    Same. But it's hard to find the first one where I'm at. I do hope this sequel to them both get's made though.

    First Dreamfall Chapters screen, details revealed

    No, you're not dreaming, that's an actual work-in-progress screenshot from Ragnar Tornquist and Red Thread Games' Dreamfall Chapters. Beyond the single screen, the Red Thread website provided a handful of details about the long-awaited continuation of Dreamfall: The Longest Journey.

    The game will return to the magical city of Marcuria some time after Dreamfall: The Longest Journey took place, and "things have changed." Exactly how they've changed is something Red Thread is keeping secret for now.

    Furthermore, the game will take place across multiple seasons, with the new screenshot representing autumn. And that's really all we know for the moment, though Red Thread promises "tons more very soon."

    The Longest Journey creator Ragnar Tørnquist opens up in Reddit AMA

    by Jessica Conditt [​IMG] (1 day ago)

    [​IMG]
    Ragnar Tørnquist, the creator of The Longest Journey adventure game saga and founder of Red Thread Games, is answering all the leftover questions from his mind-numbing puzzles with an Ask Me Anything thread on Reddit, right now. Tørnquist and Red Thread have a live Kickstarter for Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey, a continuation of the Dreamfall tale that's been rooting around development for six years. If all goes as planned and the Kickstarter raises $850,000, Dreamfall Chapters is scheduled to launch on PC in November 2014.

    If you have a question for Tørnquist, check out the AMA thread on Reddit, but be warned, hackmed already asked the most important question: "How the hell did you guys come up with that rubber ducky puzzle?"

    Dreamfall Chapters stretch goals to be Mac, Linux releases, possibly Ouya, Steam Box

    The Kickstarter campaign for Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey is getting initial stretch goals for Mac and Linux versions in addition to PC, and potentially ones for Steam Box and Ouya too. Speaking in yesterday's Reddit AMA, series creator Ragnar Tørnquist confirmed Mac and Linux are to be the first additional platforms unlocked by achieving stretch goals, with iOS and Android stretch goals "definitely" in line beyond that. Tørnquist said he'd also love to bring the adventure game to Steam Box and Ouya, but only listed them as possibilities, while next-gen consoles would come after all of the other platforms, and even then wouldn't be a "focus area" for his team.

    When pushed about other stretch goals, Tørnquist indicated they'd be based around additional content like side stories and returning characters. He also hinted at "a pretty huge stretch goal" by cough-dropping the acronym 'TLJH.' Tørnquist mentioned TLJH earlier in the AMA when asked about the different challenges in making a 3D game as opposed to a 2D one, saying cryptically, "2D is easier, in a lot of ways. I'd like to go back to 2D again. We have had discussions. There are ideas. TLJH."

    Stretch goals are likely to play a big part for Dreamfall Chapters, given that the fundraiser sits at just over $600,000 of its $850,000 target at the time of writing, with 26 days left to go. An update on the Kickstarter page says developer Red Thread Games will divulge more on the stretch goals once it's in "battling range" of the $850K finish line, so expect them to be revealed shortly.

    Dreamfall Chapters: The Longest Journey's Kickstarter fundraising drive has accumulated more than $1 million of crowd-sourced capital, with 15 days still left to go before the campaign comes to an end. Having reaching this stretch goal, developer Red Thread Games plans to add "new characters, locations and things for players to do, see, interactive with and talk to" in Chapters' two works, Stark and Arcadia.

    The Norwegian developer also recently updated its Kickstarter with the above video, an in-engine look at "Europolis," a dystopian, crime-filled city that appears to be home to the world's most successful umbrella salesman. Continue Reading

    Dreamfall Chapters trailer released, additional stretch goals revealed

    Tweet


    at 02:52pm March 4 2013

    [​IMG] In the final week of their Kickstarter campaign, Red Thread have released the first proper trailer for Dreamfall Chapters. It (re-)introduces everyone to the twin worlds of Stark and Arcadia, and also attempts to break the record for number of times a narrator says “dream”, or some variation thereof, in a three minute period. It stops just short of chanting “dreamy dreaming dreamer dreams dreams.

    I'm playing through the original that started it all right now. It's really wordy for an adventure game. If you want mountains of text and a crazy amount of spoken dialogue, then this is what you want. As for how it plays, eh, I'm not too engaged by anything other than the cool setting and world building. It's easy but tedious and somewhat poorly paced for a point-and-clicker. I still prefer Broken Sword, for example, to this original. It's iffy if I'll make it to playing the new Dreamfall.

    Do you mean the very first in the series? yeah that makes sense with the pacing.

    The Longest Journey (the one before this up coming one) how ever was on consoles and I remember besides my self playing that a lot of people loved it both reviewers and gamers. I think mostly for the exploration part of it, more then anything.

    The developers at Red Thread Games have a talent for crafting scummy futuristic places that you really, really want to visit. They did it with both The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, and they’re reusing the classic formula again in Dreamfall Chapters. This latest gameplay footage of the Kickstarter-funded sequel shows off a sinister section of Prague.

    more on a previous story that was mentioned earlier.

    “Nintendo approached us last autumn, immediately after Dreamfall Chapters was announced—they were, in fact, the first console manufacturer to do so,” says lead developer Ragnar Tørnquist.

    Dreamfall Chapters footage gives you thirty minutes of hard time

    I've never been one for the "adventure games are dead" argument, but blimey, there sure are a lot of them on the horizon. Thanks to Kickstarter and the gentle milking of nostalgia glands, we're not only getting new adventures from Double Fine and Revolution, but also the creators of The Longest Journey. Red Thread's Dreamfall Chapters is still in pre-alpha stage, meaning backers will have to use Other Game on PC for a while longer. To ease the wait, though, here's a half-hour walkthrough of the game's Friar's Keep prison escape.
